oh, what a nice feeling it is to have the redskin undefeated so far this season. dave ross here to give us a friday football forecast. can we make it two in a row over teams from texas. >> there is a hope. you get the first one, that was the big one against the cowboys. the 13-7 win over dallas which many people didn't see coming. we actually said that right here on the air. we all were in agreement here.

tony perkins i think also had the redskins too. it was not an easy win but the defense finally stepped up and did what they said they would do in the prosent and in training camp. they said they would make some turnovers and make some big plays which decided games. this was probably the big of the play at the end of the first half. have you ever soon a play end like this. they could have flown a hail mary. deangelo hall says thank you very much. touchdown, that was the difference in the game. they win by six there at the end of the first half. dallas came in highly touted and now you got the houston texans coming in. if you didn't think they were a good team in the preseason, you do after week one. >> a week ago i would have said this isn't a team i've been worried about but after seeing the running game. >> i know because you are a

football fantasy guy and a lady tba gay -- gaga guy and you knew about foster coming in. >> what do the redskin have to do to stop that? before last week, they probably weren't keying on the running game. >> very good. i'm very impressed by you. effect says you have to stop the path of this team. they have a railroad good quarterback. only through for 107 yards last year but did you know, last year led the league in three categories. did i the homework, wrote it down and everything. he had 4770 yards to lead the league. that is 400 more than drew breeze would was the super bowl mvp. led the league in completions and average yards per game, 298. steve as mazed over here. pretty amazing numbers.

if you stop foster, you better worry about matt shaw. >> they didn't get to the playoffs. >> who was the offensive coordinator? >> kyle shanahan. >> he is now here. >> here is the thing. when you talk about the numbers that shaw was able to put up last week, you would think you would key on a passing game. now you don't know what the texans are going to bring. >> that is what called balance. of this a balanced offense. the defense which was good against dallas which was not balanced has to watch out for everything. we haven't even talked about andre johnson who might be the best receiver in awful football. they have weapons. this is a danny gonzalez russ team. are the redskin up for the test? we have three hours to go in the morning show or four hours. it is a long show. we'll talk more and more about it. >> it is five and a half hours technically and we do keep it balanced by giving dave ross three minutes and we take the other 57 every hour. straight head, following breaking news near the u.s. continue, a shooting possibly
